Are you craving a deeper understanding of the classic 26 & 2? Have you been working this practice a long time and feel stuck? Are you ready to explore and further the practice of self-study as you step out of your comfort zone?
Join me on Saturday, May 18th from 1:30-3:30 for a breakdown on the notorious hot yoga sequence. The class will be built from the ground up with the nucleus of the workshop detailing foot work and attention to alignment. The mechanical breakdowns will focus on the warm-up pranayama breathing, half moon with backbend and forward bend, standing head to knee, standing bow pulling pose, camel and rabbit poses. The room will be heated to roughly 90 degrees.
Come prepared to partner up and demo if you have specific questions! I will provide you with tips and tricks to transform your practice and keep you endlessly searching for more. Stay for the 4pm 26&2 class also led by yours truly and implement everything you learned in the workshop plus get some extra goodies! See you on the mat.
BACK AT IT!

Sunday Dinner is Making a Comeback.
It’s an ideal way to entertain: long, lazy Sunday evening with friends and family gathered together around the table. Think uncomplicated comfort food without the formality of a Saturday night dinner party—it’s more of a community effort and a chance to decompress.
Our host for the evening is THIS Warehouse, in Frogtown, nestled between Silverlake, Mt. Washington, Echo Park and Atwater Village. The amazing creative hub along the LA river seems to currently be the Eastside’s little secret and we can’t wait to play!
Since we’re BBF and movement and music is a must, the evening will begin with a sunset yoga practice led by Kari J. and an all vinyl set by RyToast. After yoga, we’ll have an abbreviated cocktail hour and beverage experience featuring hard kombucha by BrewjaLA and The Tea Drop Trailer environment while you enjoy a live musical performance by Honey LaRochelle and the Baddies. Then we’ll dine together under the stars with a delicious vegan soul feast prepared by Chef Puttie and all vinyl set courtesy of the talented turntablist DJ Mona Lisa.
And like the Sunday dinners of old, it’s an opportunity to bring multiple generations of friends and family together around the table. This event is 21 and over, co-ed and open to the public.

7:30 - 8:15p Live Musical Performance
